Between the frat parties and the constantly flowing beer, getting a girl to bed in college is usually not a problem. While a typical morning after a weeknight hookup may consist of you and your guy sleeping through class followed by an afternoon walk of shame, things like this probably won’t happen with an older guy.

“He’ll pick you up instead of just meeting somewhere, and it’s not bad to expect that he’ll get the check.” 2.

If he likes you, why would he avoid you until it's deemed societally appropriate to text?
